    I absolutely LOVED this short story. The author makes every word and every sentence count as she peels back the layers of the characters and situations, and I don't want to give anything away in this review. So I'll just say it was absolutely riveting and the end scenes really took me by surprise, which is saying a lot because I read a lot and can almost always guess what's coming, but not this time...and not with her other works either. Plus she includes fascinating historical info after the st I absolutely LOVED this short story.

Plus she includes fascinating historical info after the story that plumps up the facts in her story (she really does her research!), which I'm seeing seems to be a wonderful signature to her short stories. I highly recommend this short story (you don't have to be into Civil War-era stories to enjoy this one) and can't wait for her next.
